I first saw photos of this hotel a few years ago and could not believe it was a real building. I like it. It is colorful, and, whether you like it or not, it is original.

Well, us in America went through a phase like this as our country became a car culture.
The few that remain are classic landmarks. I like this.

Wow, very interesting design and something unique that can't be found anywhere else (except for maybe LasVegas in future!)...

I would have never believed it. But seeing is believing. The contractors must have been banging their HEADS AGAINST THE WALL trying to figure out how to build this building.

Reminds of the duck restaurant in Robert Venturi's "Learning from Las Vegas"
I can't put it in words... it's architectural disaster but urbanism masterpiece!

You negative guys act like this building was built for some serious reason. It's a hotel! It's no different from seeing the Great Pyramid or the Eiffel Tower in Las Vegas. It's just amusing to see regardless of how it looks. Like if you were a tourist, you'd be turned off disgusted when you see it. Yeah, right! You'd be taking pictures like everyone else.

actually I like it, in the age of globalization and copy-cats (taj mahal in dubai, pyramids and eifel tower in vegas etc..) I dont see any harm shouting out culture in a pop-age-primitive-over-the-top commercial way,
I mean having a starving kate moss spread on an entire building's facade is probably worse

^

Your opinion and comparison are very dumb and childish, not liking such horrible building makes people negative?

Let's compare... If I took a picture of this as a tourist It would be to make me laugh even more later on....Not for is amazing engineering, beauty, quality or stunning design.. This is bad taste and poor quality... Period.





You can't compare to these...
